Submerge yourself in the world of Monty Python & the Holy Grail as the six members of Monty Python take you on their foolhardy quest to make an epic film in just 28 days (coconuts not included) through this interactively interactive Holy Book of Days.
In order to re-create authentically all 28 shooting days of The Holy Grail, the Pythons have gone back to their vaults and pulled out a treasure trove of never-before-seen (or heard) outtakes, rehearsals, songs, sound effects, scripts, dozens of stills, and much much more.
Every page of the Holy Book of Days is packed with Python history, from Michael Palin’s day-by-day diary of the filming to Terry Gilliam’s storyboards to the original continuity sheets covering every shot to 360º views of props from the movie, it’s an unprecedented and a totally new look at Holy Grail.
The Holy Book of Days is crammed with over a gigabyte of media, including:
* More than 70 minutes of never-before-seen video, including outtakes and visits to the Holy Grail locations.
* Interactive 360° Props
* More than an hour of audio, featuring rehearsals, wild tracks, songs, sound effects and your favorite quotes from the film
* Interactive map
* Original animations
* Never-before-seen stills
* An introduction by John Cleese
* The screenplay
* Continuity Sheets
* Michael Palin’s Diaries
* And more!
Unfortunately, Blu-ray sync'ing features for the Holy Book of Days are no longer available.

Blu-Ray syncing so you can use the app with the Blu-Ray version of the movie at the same time [!!!!!] ..... Unused footage .... Monty Python-written commentary on what is was like to make"Monty Python & The Holy Grail" .... a cool, interactive, hand-drawn map of the locales .... An nice long introduction by John Cleese .... Plus much, much more -- including something I don't wanna mention here so as not to spoil it [It FLOORED me ....] Honestly, no BS -- get this now & just stare in slackjawed disbelief at the screen at the amount of cool, unbelevable stuff there is here.

Huge fan of Holy Grail and I love this app, but there appears to be a bug in Day 18. When I click to view the photos, I get kicked out of the app & have to go back in. Never get to see those photos, very annoying. Looks like at least 1 other person has experienced this. Anyone else? Think they will issue a fix? Really hope so.
